Hello all : )
I had originally shared this story with Cynthia and was asked to post it here for others to enjoy.
A sweet story from the Castlegar Summer Reading Club:
A girl came upstairs from the Grade 2 to 4 Summer Reading Program with her mom. She already had a book in her hand, but also checked out two picture books. Her mom told me that the daughter takes out one book downstairs at reading club for herself but then wants to come up and pick out a few to take home and read to her brother. I found this story really heartwarming, and a reminder of the great power of Summer Reading Club.
Hope everyone enjoys & is having a great SRC so far!
So fun to visit North Vancouver District Library and get a chance to see their exhibit: A Look Back: 29 Years of the BC Summer Reading Club.
When Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education, moved out of their Robson Street office earlier this year, all the framed BC SRC posters needed a home. NVDPL offered not only a roof, but also an exhibit on the 2nd Floor of Lynn Valley Library.What a wonderful opportunity to see all the BC SRC posters in one place! On display till July 30.
Here are a few pics from the opening reception:
A Look Back: 29 Years of the BC Summer Reading Club.
Jacqueline van Dyk (NVDPL’s Director of Library Services) welcomed guests and visitors to the opening reception.
Jacqueline with a reading record one of her own children had filled out: “Something we treasure and hang onto forever.”

Nice to see retired (ILK/PLSB) SRC alumni, Jim Looney.
What a pleasure to meet 2008 artist, Elisa Gutiérrez (Read all Over the Map)
And if you can’t make it to North Van, thanks to our Web Guy, Neil Firkins (pictured above), you can always see the posters on the BC SRC digital archives.
We are almost completely out of reading logs for the kids. To get through the rest of summer we need about 25-50. If anyone has extra it would be greatly appreciated if you could send them our way!
Joining the chorus of people who need more reading records!

Pemberton would love 50 more sticker sets. If anyone has spares we would love to have them.
We were also in search of more reading records but have ended up creating our own on 11 x 17 paper. We usually have about 30 kids signed up. As of today we are at 115.
Please contact Marilyn Marinus
We are running low and could use about 200 more if anyone has some to spare!

Pemberton is in need of more reading records for SRC 2018, can anyone spare some? We are hoping to get another 30. If any libraries could spare some of what they have and if we even got a few from several libraries, that would be AWESOME!
